Hi, my name is Gabriela. I live in Santa Clarita, CA and I've been a caregiver for five years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I am a very compassionate person. I grew up with my brother with Down Syndrome my entire life, and I love helping people. I love what I do, and that's the reason I became a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always try your best and treat that person as you would want to be treated.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Justin. I worked with him and he had a lot of seizures. I was always there following him around and making sure that he didn't hurt himself. I learned a lot from him and I think he learned a lot from me as well.
